4.29/5 rDev +9.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25
bottle into tulip
appearance: dark mahogany/copper, no head whatsoever, no lacing
smell: honey, booze, dark fruits, some notes of cherry, grapes
taste: Dark fruits and lots of apple/pear notes off the bat, you can feel the alcohol warmth but for 16% it is very modest. Lots of honey and figs, the finish is dry and smooth with more dark fruits and sweet malts.
mouthfeel: almost zero carbonation, medium bodied yet syrupy
overall: Haven't had much of this style, but this was very drinkable and refreshing. I wonder what the 2 years of age did to this, as the alcohol was very subdued and overall this was a lot more balanced and sweet than I expected. Will buy again if I see it.

2011 vintage, bottle into tulip
Appearance : Dark mahogany mixed with a light honey color gives this beer its overall color, No head at all, no lacing in this one
Smell : Honey straight from bottle, once poured into glass has more of a sweet red wine smell and the honey sweetness is still present
Taste : Balanced fairly well, the alcohol is more warming than overwhelming. As far as flavor goes, you get a good taste of honey mixed slightly with dark malts. No bitterness in this beer either. The after taste is pleasant with lingering honey notes, that makes you feel like you just licked a bit of honey from a spoon or have eaten a plain honey stick.
Mouthfeel : No carbonation, medium bodied with a little syrupy flow down the throat
Overall : Ive had one other mead in my life. Good overall, although I am not very familiar with the style. I would buy this again hands down. Its alcohol volume mixed with its smoothness makes this a good end to a long day. Go find one or three.
